Human Mucin Gene MUC5B, the 10.7-kb Large Central Exon Encodes Various Alternate Subdomains Resulting in a Super-repeat

Tel.: 33-3-20-29-88-59; Fax: 33-3-20-53-85-62; E-mail: Abstract Human mucin gene MUC5B is mapped clustered with MUC6, MUC2, and MUC5AC on chromosome 11p15.5. Nathan's Story; Tay-Sachs Disease in the Irish Population. National Tay-Sachs & Allied Diseases Association of Delaware Valley (NTSAD-DV) A baby with Tay-Sachs disease appears healthy at birth, and seems to be developing normally for a few months.

Symptoms generally appear by six months of age. While symptoms vary from one child to the next, there is always a slowing down of development. Gradually, Tay-Sachs children lose motor skills and mental functions. Over time, the child becomes blind, deaf, mentally retarded, paralyzed and non responsive to the environment.

Software Agreement Grade and Content Area: 8th Grade – Life Sciences Overview This experiment is part of the Interactive Science Lab which also contains the sugar and water solubility experiment and the redi experiment.

Fruit Fly Genetics

In this experiment students step through the process of seeing fruit flies pass traits to their offspring. Lesson Plan Description of the Science Content of the Module: Students step through the process of seeing fruit flies pass on thier traits to offspring. Game Play: Upon entering the lab the students must right click on a stool and select sit in order to sit down. Education Standards: Grade 8 – Life Sciences Benchmark B Indicator 2. Virtual Courseware for Inquiry-based Science Education. VCISE is a collection of interactive, online simulations designed to enhance traditional middle and high school science curricula by providing supplements to experimental laboratory or field work.

Virtual Courseware for Inquiry-based Science Education

The inquiry-based activities emphasize the scientific method. Students make observations, propose hypotheses, design experiments, collect and analyze data generated by the simulation, and synthesize and communicate results through an electronic notebook and an online report. The activities include an online assessment quiz with randomized interactive questions. Editable online templates for constructing a lab report and a grading rubric are available for the teacher, as well as access to their class or individual student assessment profiles. Standards See how each activity aligns to the U.S. Illustrations -by content area. The Blood Typing Game - about blood groups, blood typing and blood transfusions. What happens if you get a blood transfusion with the wrong blood type?

The Blood Typing Game - about blood groups, blood typing and blood transfusions

Even though a patient's own blood type is the first choice for blood transfusions, it's not always available at the blood bank. Try to save some patients' lives and learn about human blood types! Intro. Practice Genetics Problems The following links will take you to pages containing genetics practice problems.


Students who already understand the material can use these questions to review. Students who are having trouble understanding how to work all or just some of the problems are provided with hints that will take you stepwise through the sproblem. Additionally, you can use these pages for vocabulary review. As you go through the problems, if you are unsure of the meaning one or more of the terms highlighted in blue, just click on it and you will be taken to a definition page. The formation of gametes Monohybrid crosses Dihybrid crosses Incomplete dominance Linked genes. Untitled. Many of you came up with numerous abnormal findings and indeed this baby had many including: Very logically this led many of you to think that a multiorgan syndrome like this could be an aneuploidy and suggested trisomy 13 and trisomy 18.

And indeed the procedure to confirm the suspicion was to do a karyotype. Very few, however, made the most crucial observation: the great disproportion between the head and abdomen. That disproportion is very typical of triploidy (see the lecture on aneuploidy for another example) and I know of no other conditions where such a big difference exist without a concomitant intracranial anomaly such as hydrocephaly, or teratomas… Of course, one of you will come up with a great differential diagnosis and then we will learn even more !
